Beyond Workers' Comp: Third-Party Claims For On-The-Job Injuries

If you have been hurt on the job and have been through the workers' compensation process, it is likely that the benefits you're receiving are not adequate to cover your medical expenses and lost wages. If you need more compensation than what workers' compensation will afford you, it is important to talk with an experienced lawyer about the possibility of a third-party liability claim.

At Dawkins & Gowens Law Firm, we handle all types of on-the-job injury claims, including workers' compensation and third-party personal injury claims for injured clients. From our home office in Oklahoma City, we serve clients throughout the state.

Accidents While On The Job

We serve clients who have suffered all kinds of injuries while on the job that can result in third-party claims, including:

  • Auto accidents while on the job: We have particular experience representing police officers who have been struck by other drivers during routine stops. We also represent delivery drivers, truck drivers, taxi drivers and other workers who drive as a normal part of employment.
  • Construction and industrial accidents: Many factory and construction accidents result from faulty tools and equipment. When faulty ladders and tools that cause accidents can result in third-party liability claims against the manufacturers.
  • Office accidents and injuries: Although offices are among the safest work environments, accidents and injuries do happen. In addition to repetitive stress injuries, electric shocks, falls and other injuries are common.

Part of workers' compensation law prohibits lawsuits against injured workers' co-employees. However, if someone other than your employer or your co-workers (a third party) caused the accident, we could bring a separate personal injury claim against that party.
